The Calgary Chinese Private School was founded in 1916 by a group of dedicated and passionate overseas Chinese. Working closely with local churches, their purpose is to preserve and propagate Chinese language and culture. In March of 1939, the school had registered to become a legitimate educational institution. Afterward, it changed its name to Calgary Chinese Public School and has been the premier Chinese language school in the city of Calgary. The CCPS is also the first Chinese language school to be accredited by Alberta Learning.
For decades, under the support of various organizations and individuals, Calgary Chinese Public School has undergone an extraordinary transformation. Now, it has been developed into a full-fledged learning centre with its own campus.
